    Wyclef Jean was "shot" in the hand this weekend in Haiti. That was the media spin. However, his hand was actually grazed by a bullet and he was treated and released on Saturday.

    His family has spoken out about the situation. "You can wound a man, but you can not stop a revolution," Wyclef's sister Melky Jean told MTV News on Sunday. "I pray for a peaceful election day. I pray that democracy is restored in Haiti, and there is an end to the violence and suffering."

    The shooting occurred on the eve of presidential elections in Haiti. Jean is supporting fellow musician Michel Martelly. You may remember that 'Clef tried to run for president of Haiti last year. It was a failed bid.

    What do you think about the Wyclef shooting incident?
