Talib Kweli, Fans React to Wyclef Jean Shot in Haiti

Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand in Haiti on Saturday night (March 19th).

The producer/rapper was shot while visiting the Delmas section of Haiti’s Port-au-Prince, the evening prior to Haiti’s presidential runoff vote. While the injury from the shooting was described as “minor”, Jean was brought to the hospital for treatment of a bullet graze and released shortly thereafter. CNN reports that Clef was shot while attempting to step out of his car to speak on his phone. Whether or not Jean was intentionally shot or it was accidental remains a mystery. Jean has, however, supported the presidential campaign of Michel Martelly (a fellow musician). Martelly is running against former first lady Mirlande Manigat in Haiti’s presidential election.
