Wycelf Jean Shot In Haiti

21 Mar

Rapper, activist, and former presidential candidate of Haiti, Wyclef Jean, was shot in Haiti yesterday morning while riding inside of a car with Busta Rhymes, Jimmy Rosemond, and members of his entourage. They were driving through Delmas #65 in Port-au-Prince when reportedly a spray of gunfire rang out and was fired into the vehicle, which resulted in Wyclef being shot in the hand. No one else was injured. Wyclef’s spokesperson says that he has been treated and released from a Haitian hospital.

The hand that was struck is Wyclef’s right hand, which is the hand he uses to play guitar. No word on the severity of his injuries.

His management, however, did Tweet this message from Wyclef’s account:

“We have spoken to Wyclef, he is ok. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers – Managment”

Fellow Fugees member Pras confirmed the incident, tweeting:

“Yes they shot Wyclef and he’s in the hospital and he’ll be fine. They just shot his hand ..”
