The girl was in the car when someone in a passing sedan opened fire in the 8000 block of South Stewart Avenue about 2:20 a.m., Chicago police said.

She was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the torso, police said. She was listed in serious condition.

No one was in custody.
