Wyclef Jean (Maybe) Shot in Haiti

According to different reports, Wyclef Jean may or may not have been shot while in Haiti.

RollingStone reports that Jean was afflicted with a gunshot wound to his hand on Saturday night in Delmas, which is “just outside Port-au-Prince.” He was attending a campaign rally for musician and presidential candidate Michel “Sweet Mickey” Martelly.

Jean’s representatives said the wound was superficial and released no further details regarding Jean or the shooter.

Some reports allege Jean was traveling with his entourage and Busta Rhymes.

The New York Daily News reports that police say glass caused the injury, even though Jean claimed, “a bullet grazed his hand as he stepped out of a car to make a phone call.”

Jean also said he didn’t know who fired the shots or whether they were directed at him.

Vanel Lacroix, police chief in Petionville said, “We met with the doctor who saw him and he confirmed Wyclef was cut by glass.”
