A South Seattle Community College student is in serious condition after being shot several times Thursday night in West Seattle, possibly because of a dispute over a ring, according to Seattle police.

Police were called to the 5600 block of Delridge Way Southwest shortly after 11 p.m. When they arrived they found a man laying in a lawn, bleeding from his chest, according to police reports.

When the officer asked about who shot him, he was unable to answer. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center for critical injuries.

The man's sister told officers she had no idea why her brother was at that location, and claimed he had no gang ties.

A person who was across the street from where the shooting took place told police she heard a dispute in the street before shots were fired.

Police said the suspect may have been driving a red minivan, but they do not have a physical description of the suspect, said police spokeswoman Renee Witt.

Witt said police are uncertain if this was a gang-related incident.
