Tulsa Police say an officer was flagged down on Highway 169 at 11th Street by a person who was shot.

Police said the man initially told them someone else had shot him but they now say the man accidentally shot himself in the leg while driving in the northbound lanes of Highway 169.

After shooting himself, the man pulled over and another driver stopped and called police. Officers said the man told them someone else had shot him because he didn't want them to know he had a gun in the vehicle.

Police haven't released the driver's name or condition. He has been transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police say.
