(CNN) — Hip-hop singer Wyclef Jean was recovering Sunday after he was shot in the hand, his publicist said.
Spokeswoman Cindy Tanenbaum said Jean, who was in Haiti, was shot in Port-au-Prince on Saturday — on the eve of the country’s presidential runoff vote.
The wound was superficial and “he is doing well,” Tanenbaum said.
Jean suffered the wound soon after stepping out of his car to talk on his phone, according to Gerry Andre, his spokesman in Haiti.
“He heard a gunshot, then he saw his right-hand palm was bleeding,” Andre said.
Jean was treated by a doctor at a hospital and released, Tanenbaum said.
Andre said it was not clear if Jean was a target of the shooting. “I cannot accuse anybody,” Andre said.
The police investigation was stalled by Jean’s refusal to speak to police about the incident, according to Garry Desrosiers, a spokesman for the Haitian national police.
Jean has been helping the presidential campaign of popular musician Michel Martelly, who is on the ballot against former first lady Mirlande Manigat in Sunday’s pivotal presidential runoff election.
