Note that the specific situation you are describing can't really happen.... if a penalty is assessed and bodies are pulled, either a player is pulled or he isn't. So for example if player A gets a penalty, and then player B gets shot, then the ref is going to pull player C. If player A gets a penalty and the ref then pulls player B and then player B gets shot, that's it - player B was already eliminated so getting shot after that is immaterial.
This is what happened -
Player A gets a major, player B is pulled(1 of 2). Player C (2 of 2), sees the red flag and progresses up field shooting his gun. A ref follows him rather slowly and assesses a minor to player C, resulting in both player C and player D being pulled. Player E was left in. Thinking that all players were eliminated due to two flags being thrown, the other team runs down the field with one player remaining who ultimately shoots the remaining players. It was a crucial point and the team who had the two penalties hung the flag but still started a man down the following point.
