Yes, by you!

Now for the last time, an Embraer E jet does not need air connected before all engines are shut down on arrival, ever! It doesn't need it with APU working, with APU u/s, it doesn't need it if it is summer, winter, raining or windy. It doesn't need it!

The day of the accident it was unclear if this was the RH or LH engine as different media including news outlets and aviation fora had conflicting information.
One reason for it being the RH engine would have been shutting down the LH as that side has the air hook up.
Conditioned or for starting.
Need it or not that was the working theory.
Question asked here was why would you keep one running and which one.
So that proves to be incorrect.
Was still a plausible explanation with the information available.
Then came the whole discussion if you needed air or not and everyone headed for the weeds.

There are more reasons why you’d shut down the left engine on different types of airplanes:
  • Fuel panel left wing
  • Jetway and access door
  • Air hookup
Its a useless discussion now though.
