Haiti, The Presidents Private Residence: “There’s an intruder in my house, he cut my phone line, can’t dial out, I scream for police, but I doubt, there gonna hear me when I shout.” (Eminem) God forbid could you imagine you and your wife are sleeping in your guarded home when suddenly you’re woken out of your slumber to men speaking Spanish. You reside in Haiti so from the jump you know something’s wrong. It’s during the witching hours so you don’t have much time to react and the next thing you hear is gunshots then nothingness.
Details of exactly what went down are vague. What we do know is that Jovenel Moise the Prime Minister of Haiti was assassinated in his home last night and his wife is in the hospital fighting for her life. The group of unidentified individuals invaded the Haitian President’s private residence. The first thought that comes to mind is that these men must have been professionals. I would assume the President of any Nation would be heavily guarded and protected.
When more details emerge we will bring them to you. For know IMUer’s watch the videos above and below to hear what went down and how the country plans to move forward.

May his wife have a safe speedy recovery.
