Port-au-Prince - A spokesperson for Wyclef Jean says the hip-hop star has been released from a hospital after being treated for a gunshot wound to his hand.
Joe Mignon, senior programme director for Jean's Yele Foundation, says Jean was shot in the hand after 23:00 local time on Saturday in the city of Delmas, just outside Port-au-Prince.
Jean's brother, Samuel, confirmed the musician was shot. Neither he nor Mignon had additional details.
The shooting comes on the eve of presidential elections in Haiti. Jean is supporting fellow musician Michel Martelly.
