As far as I know, it is an absolute rule that present perfect is not used with specific date. However, I saw this sentence in the beginning of a video in this TIME article:
11 people have died in a shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27, authorities said.
I have two reasons for this usage:
- It is a custom in news/journalism.
- The shooting occurred on Oct. 27, but 11 people have died so far.
Am I correct?
