Wyclef Jean shot in Haiti

Ex-Fugees man released from hospital after suffering hand wound

Wyclef Jean has been released from hospital after suffering a gunshot wound in Haiti.

The former Fugees man was shot in the hand late last night (March 19) in the city of Delmas, reports Billboard.

No further details of the shooting, which came just before the general election was due to take place in the country, have been made public yet. Jean, who had attempted to register to run for President himself there, was in Haiti to support musician candidate Michel Martelly.


Jean called off his own Presidential bid last September. He had not lived in Haiti for five years before the election, as candidates are required to have done required by authorities.
