If a Death Company arrives together with a Chaplain and some Terminators you gotta chose. But the Chaplain is not targetable due to regular shooting rules.
Even if he arrives alone.

In order to target an enemy unit, a model from that unit must be within the Range of the
weapon being used (as listed on its profile) and be visible to the shooting model
A Character can only be chosen as a target in the Shooting phase ...

Now it's down to whether 'shoot at' is before or after targetting.
CDR_Farsight wrote:You are missing the point. The EWO rule actively bypasses target selection whereas it does not actively bypass range and LoS. It is not an "all or nothing" situation. There is no choice in the targeting; therefore, you are not breaking the rule of CHOOSING TO TARGET a character. [Chosen] is the key word here...there is no choice whatsoever in how the EWO targets.
CDR_Farsight wrote:For instance, there are a few AoE abilities that say "pick a point on the battlefield" everything within 3" of that point takes a mortal wound on a 4+. The model with that ability at no point says it can target characters. Are we to believe that characters are either immune to the ability or that you are not allowed to place the center point within 3" of a character because that model can't target characters?
CDR_Farsight wrote:It's called an Early Warning OVERRIDE...as in it overrides the normal targeting of the model to target a threat it has detected appearing close by that the operator may not have detected. Does the signature of a character's teleportation look different than a regular terminator teleportation? Do characters flying in from above not show up on RADAR?
Foolish Jack wrote:"Q: When can I target an enemy Character that has a Wounds characteristic of less than 10?
A: Such a Character can only be targeted in the Shooting phase if it is the nearest visible model to the firing model. You can target enemy Characters without restriction in the Psychic phase*, Charge phase, Fight phase, etc. You may also make shooting attacks at enemy Characters which occur outside the Shooting phase (i.e. when resolving Overwatch in the Charge phase)."
