A 17-year-old girl and a man were wounded in a shootout at a gas station in Bronzeville on the South Side.

A man, 40, was pumping gas in the 400 block of East Pershing Road when he began arguing with people in a black Infiniti sedan, police said.

Someone in the car fired shots, striking the man in the leg, police said. He returned fire and hit a 17-year-old girl inside the Infiniti in the arm.

He went to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

The teen was driven by a friend to Provident Hospital of Cook County, where she was listed in fair condition, police said.

No one from the Infiniti was in custody as of early Friday morning.
