Wyclef Jean was shot in Haiti this weekend - but it's not a life-threatening wound. reports that Jean is in the country helping the presidential campaign of musician Michel Martelly, who is on the ballot against former first lady Mirlande Manigat for a Sunday election runoff. (It's worth noting he supported Michel's campaign after Haiti ruled he was ineligible to run for President himself, having not maintained residency in Haiti for five consecutive years.) Jean suffered the wound soon after stepping out of his car to talk on his phone according to his spokesman Gerry Andre. "He heard a gunshot, then he saw his right-hand palm was bleeding." By all accounts the wound was not serious and he's already been treated and released, but Haitian police are reportedly frustrated in their investigation of the incident because Jean refuses to talk to them about it. If more news breaks on this situation we'll bring you an update.
