The incident occurred in an area of Port-au-Prince that is controlled by armed gangs. According to media reports, the senator later appeared at the police departmental address to report an attack on his person. So far, the causes and those responsible for the armed aggression are unknown.
The attack was perpetrated on the eve of the end of the politician's term as head of the Senate. Lambert is one of the ten senators who were still active in Haiti, and who cease as of midnight this Sunday, when the term for which they were elected comes to an end.
In the Caribbean nation, no elections have been held to renew the democratic institutions, which has contributed to the acute political crisis facing the Caribbean nation.
According to local media, exactly one year ago two police officers assigned to Lambert's security and his driver were kidnapped.
