Of course, if the dead player is intentionally and unethically acting as a meat shield for a live one, well...by all means, there are no rules against laying copious amounts of "suppression" fire on a piece of cover.
Otherwise, it might be prudent to seek better cover. Personally I think if a guy got hit, I'm not going to go where it happened. Lightning does tend to strike in the same place twice.
