Who Me? Couldn’t Be!

Found in BBC News:

An attempt to kill Pakistan’s PM could be a warning shot.

Actually, according to Wikipedia, a warning shot is “a harmless artillery shot or gunshot intended to call attention and demand some action.” So an attempt to kill someone is, by definition, not a warning shot.
