Shared events is for a few people like a family in a census record, so that 
will not do what u want to do.

Try this. 
1.  Go to Tools, Advanced Tagging,   Use an unused Tag and Tag everyone in your 
database with say Tag 1.
2. Go to Tools, Advanced Sourcing
A. Put a source on the source clipboard (click Sourse Clipboard )
B. Select Tab - Which records to Use - select -> Assign to individuals with Tag 
C. Select Tab I - Where to Assign Citations
D. Select check box, Assign citations to individual information
E. Select all fields or a specific data field to assign you source
F. Hit Apply button to assign your clipboard source to all individuals with Tag 
1 to the field you have selected.

This seems to be a long process, but it is very easy to do.  I use this 
procedure to assign me as a source to everyone in my database if I am going to 
create a Gedcom to upload or send to someone.

Good luck.
