Do Kills Register as Yours if You Only Damage a Shield?

EDIT: Sorry, wrong forum, I'll put it in the right place.

I'm asking this because I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, so I don't know if it's worthy of reporting.

Basically, I'm playing Akali, Riven tower dives. I've done no damage to her actual health, but she stays too long and before the final tower shot kills her, I Shadow Dash to her and deal damage to her new shield from her E (Valor), but not enough to break it. Tower breaks through the rest and kills her, and it ends up being counted as an execution rather than a kill. Is this a bug or is it supposed to be that way?
