According to the AP, Hip Hop Singer and former member of the Fugees, Wyclef Jean has been shot in his hand and currently is recovering, his publicist said.
Spokeswoman Cindy Tanenbaum said “Jean, who was in Haiti, was shot in Port-au-Prince on Saturday on the eve of the country’s presidential runoff vote.
The wound was superficial and “he is doing well,” Tanenbaum said.
The AP reported that Jean suffered the wound soon after stepping out of his car to talk on his phone, according to Gerry Andre, his spokesman in Haiti.
“He heard a gunshot, then he saw his right-hand palm was bleeding,” said Andre.
“Jean was treated by a doctor at a hospital and released”, said Tanenbaum.
Andre said it was not clear if Jean was a target of the shooting. “I cannot accuse anybody,” Andre said.
The Haitian National Police are conducting an investigation, but it was stalled by Jean’s refusal to speak to police about the incident, according to Garry Desrosiers, a spokesman for the HNP.
RSR wishes Wyclef Jean a speedy recovery.
