Not sure if this is the right place or not… if not, apologies.
This happened twice to me in open space (Empire sector, if that matters).
First time I was fighting some pirates. I unexpectedly died, the combat log said I was killed by Cloudz. I said hey, Cloudz reported that he did not fire on me. Additionally the combat popup said I was killed by a positron cannon. Cloudz doesn’t have a positron cannon. Interestingly, the combat log does not reflect positron cannon. (Yes, I’m quite certain the log showed positron cannon.)
< PRIVATE From>[ Cloudz] yea im gonna go with that was a glitch im in a squad and no one saw me attacking you
< PRIVATE From>[ Cloudz] oh yea it was a glitch, i dont have a positron cannon
< PRIVATE To >[ Cloudz] so you found it in your combat log then?
< PRIVATE From>[ Cloudz] yea
< PRIVATE From>[ Cloudz] but it said i killed you with a weapon i dont have

Second time, I was dead and waiting for a res. Some other players were fighting some bios in the zone, then I noticed the kill notification popup (screen top left) said killed by me, again by a positron cannon, which again was not equipped.
I’m not sure how to reproduce this except to play and pay attention to the kill notifications.
Sorry I have no screenshots. You can have the entire logs, not sure if they’ll help more than the excerpts above.
