Daunte Wright case - Taser v. Gun

I’m not sure this is the right forum for this topic, since most of my threads get moved by the mod, but the latest high-profile police shooting has me wondering how it’s possible to get confused between a taser and a pistol. I’ve shot many pistols but never a taser. Anyone here who’s handled both who can opine on this apparent tragic confusion? From this pic, I can’t understand how this happened.
