A 12-year-old girl was wounded and a man was killed in a shooting Wednesday on the South Side.

They were at a gathering outside about 9:40 p.m. in the 7300 block of South Claremont Avenue when someone unleashed gunfire, Chicago police said.

The girl was struck in the leg and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in good condition, police said.
