AUSTIN, Texas – Harry Whittington, a pioneering Texas Republican and prominent Austin lawyer who found himself thrust into the national spotlight in 2006 when he was accidentally shot by then-Vice President Dick Cheney, died over the weekend at 95.

Whittington’s death was reported by multiple news outlets since Sunday and confirmed by his wife and family friend Karl Rove. No cause of death was listed and no funeral arrangements were made public.

Tall and impeccably dressed, Whittington remained active in his Austin law practice into his 90s. For the rest of his life, he carried in his cheek and torso some of the birdshot pellets from Cheney’s shotgun in the quail hunting accident on a ranch owned by South Texas’ influential Armstrong family.
