I'll preface this with I'm a beginner in this game. I did look through the rules but I didn't find/interpret how this works.

I have a squad of 10 necron warriors, 5 are pinched so a small template can take out all 5. I get this. A squad of 3 obliterators intend to fire on the squad. Here is how my opponent played the shooting on this:
1. Said all 3 templates will line up on the 5 necrons
2. Rolled 3 times with scatter dice, 2 dead hits other scattered off and hit nothing
3. Rolled wounds for 2 hits on 5 units. He got 8 wounds.

Here are my questions.
1. Is this how you roll the shooting on this? All concurrent or one at a time?
2. Can wounds be applied to models (in the same unit) but outside of the blast template?

I can see how this is the case because wounds go to a pool. But with how GW seems to try and rationalize how stuff works, it seems if you throw 2 blast shots in the same spot and the first destroys all targets the second just goes in a crater and does nothing. I figured the way my opponent played it is right and didn't make a difference in the outcome, but I want to know 100% in case this comes up again. If there is a post that clarifies this or a page that I'm missing or mis-reading please point me to them. Sorry if I'm just that much of a noob that I don't understand the rules.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure you have it right. All shooting from a squad happens at the same time, regardless of how you play it out with your rolls. With blast weapons they can even hit things out of line of sight with the scatter.

You pick the model you want to centre the blast marker around and roll your scatter, you can put all the markers on the same model if you'd like. It's up to the shooter.

Removal of units still comes from the front of the squad (front being whichever side is facing the unit shooting them) with blast templates unless they are non-LOS barrage shots, then they start with those closest to the centre of the blast marker and work their way out.

Hope this helps!

Yep you've played i correctly as Ntaw says.

Just imagine the missile or what ever is coming at the squad at a flat trajectory and so hits the front of the squad first then explodes in a cone of shrapnel, which is represented by the blast template.

Note that Barrage weapons always go from the centre of the template regardless of LOS
