A 40-year-old man was killed and a 13-year-old girl was wounded in a shooting Tuesday night in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side.

About 10 p.m., Kenneth Carrington and the girl were standing on the sidewalk in the 7300 block of South University when shots rang out and they were both struck, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Carrington was shot in the neck and taken to Jackson Park Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:22 p.m., authorities said. He lived on the same block as the shooting.

The girl suffered a graze wound to the left leg and was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where she was listed in good condition, police said, adding that she appears to have been struck by a stray bullet.
