Correct they should implement shot detection patch to combat this issue. Say you accidentally shoot your friend or a security craft you will be warned if you shoot the same craft again 2nd warning, 3rd warning will be last if you shoot the same craft after three times then you should be wanted. Also increase the fine once you're wanted it should be 1k & any further strikes adds 1k on top. On that note they should remove the bounty wipe if you get kill by NPC or self destruct, the bounty on your head should remain till another CMDR kills you.
So I fire one of those scatter gun type things, and "Ping Warning Ping Warning Ping Wanted Ping Ping Ping Ping Ping!"

Two solutions to that: tag each individual projectile as having been fired by a single activation of the weapon, or have a timer after which a hit counts as subsequent rather than simultaneous. This all adds to the complexity and processing burden of the system, especially when p2p multiplayer synchronization is taken into account.
 
I tried to adapt the issue you're discussing to today's world. If you shoot a police vehicle once, they only shout at you. You shot twice, they should louder and only after a third shot they chase you :)

Yeah, I know, shields (but what if you shoot at a police armoured vehicle? or a military tank? would they be polite too? :D )
