I know you cannot shoot into a Close Combat, but what about this? Player A is using a very numerous unit (Say, 30 Gaunts) and it engages in close combat with one of Player B's units. Several of the first unit could not make it close enough to engage in combad, but retain coherency.
Is Player B allowed to use ranged fire from other units to target these unengaged models, since they are not locked into Close Combat? Or do they count as being in the combat just by being part of a unit that has members in CC?

Only the Vindicare Assassin can shoot into a combat. However, blast markers can scatter onto a combat too but they can never actually target it.

A valid target in the shooting phase is a unit, not models (page 15 BR.
So unengaged or not, the act of close combat by a unit provides a denial for a shooting attack against them unless specifically allowed.
(I believe that there is also an Ork psychic shooting attack that can be used in close combat also, so here is an example of your specified allowance.)
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
