Singer/rapper Wyclef Jean was injured in Haiti Saturday (March 19), on the eve of the country’s presidential runoff vote.
Jean, a Haiti native was shot in the hand in Port-au-Prince when the car he was riding in along rapper Busta Rhymes was attacked according to Boombox.

Nobody else in the vehicle was injured.
