Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words Murdered Where?
<<To be murdered on a street corner, do you have to die on that street corner?>>
It certainly helps in drama--and you save the cab fare, always a plus.
Ordinarilly, I suppose, this would be reported "X was shot at corner and was pronounced dead at hospital two hours later." It remains, though, that X was murdered, and he was not murdered in the hospital. That it was reported "murdered" and not "shot and pronounced dead" seems to me appropriate in an historical piece.
That you would feel cheated one way or another deserves consideration :)
