TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police and EMSA paramedics had to persuade a man who had shot himself in the leg while grilling steaks to go the hospital early Wednesday.

The unidentified man was on the balcony of his apartment near 12th and Gillette when he accidentally shot himself in the leg.

At first he told Tulsa Police he had been robbed and then shot.  

When EMSA showed up, he refused treatment, because he said he was afraid someone would steal his steaks.

Eventually he went to a Tulsa hospital after a neighbor offered to put the steaks in a freezer for safe keeping.

There's no word on the man's condition.
