This doesn’t bode well for someone who was planning to run for office in 2015. Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand right outside Port au Prince, the capital of his home country Haiti. Fortunately, he only sustained only minor injuries, since the bullet just grazed him. His spokesperson gave the update stating, “He’s fine now. It happened late yesterday night and he was released after a couple of hours.”
Wyclef was planning to run for Haiti’s presidential election this year, which were ironically this weekend, but couldn’t qualify because of residency requirement. Apparently, the singer was getting out of his car when he heard gunfire. He’s not aware of whether he was just caught in the crossfire, or whether someone was actually out to shoot him. All he knows so far is that after he heard the shots, he saw blood on his shirt and shoes which is when he realized he had been hit. We’re really glad that this didn’t turn out as badly as it could have.
