According to Joe Mignon, a senior program director for Jean’s Yele Foundation, the singer was shot in the hand in Delmas, Haiti around 11 p.m. local time. Samuel Jean also confirmed that his brother was shot.
No additional details were offered.
The singer made news last year when he announced he was running for the presidency of Haiti; however, he was declared ineligible to run because he did not live in that nation for five years as required. Last September, Jean ended his candidacy to promote his album.
