While campaigning for fellow performer Michel “Sweet Micky” Martelly ahead of Haiti’s run-off election, someone shot famed rapper Wyclef Jean in the hand. Jean went to a hospital for treatment, but was later released.

The shooting occurred in the Delmas section of the capital, Port-au-Prince. Last week, Jean staged a concert with Martelly in hopes of winning votes in the upcoming run-off. The police could not be reached for comment on the shooting.
