*Saturday night in Haiti, musician Wyclef jean was shot in the hand. But according to his spokesman, he has been treated and released from the hospital.

He told The Associated Press that he had just stepped out of his car to make a phone call when he heard gunfire. Jean says the next thing he noticed, there was blood on his shirt and sneakers.

He told The AP in a telephone interview Sunday that he has no idea who fired or whether the rounds were targeting him. Jean says the shooting happened in the capital of Port-au-Prince. He says a driver and the hip-hop singer known as FanFan were with him.

The incident happened the night before the presidential elections in Haiti which are being held today. Jean is supporting Michel Martelly.

The Haitian born/American raised singer attempted to run for the president of then impoverished nation last year, but his bid for candidacy was rejected because he failed to meet the residency requirement.
