I was just in a bot game with a friend. He was fighting Shen in the middle as Akali, and I was playing LeBlanc. He was killing him fine by himself, but I wanted to get an auto-attack in so I could get assist gold. As I auto-attacked, he used feint, so my attack was blocked by the shield. That was my only attack onto Shen. When Akali killed Shen, I was not credited in the Call out.
I unfortunately wasn't paying attention to my actual assists, so I have no idea whether it counted as an assist or not.
I guess an additional question would be, if feint (or any damage shield) blocks a player's only contribution of damage to their target, is it intended not to give assist credit?
