Wyclef Jean Shot In Haiti


Rapper and former Haitian presidential candidate Wyclef Jean was shot Saturday night in Delmas, Haiti. The news arrived from Haiti, where armed gunmen reportedly opened fire at Wyclef’s car. 


Jean was in the car with fellow rapper Busta Rhymes, Jimmy Rosemond and other members of his entourage. No other passengers in the vehicle were injured.


Pras confirms on Twitter: "Yes they shot Wyclef and he’s in the hospital and he’ll be fine. They just shot his hand."


Wyclef was listed in stable condition and was released after being treated in Haiti Hospital for his wound. Election day in the devastated nation is Monday, and the incident will undoubtedly affect political tides.
