How it works:

The suspect an electronically fired projectile weapon, using a wooden or cardboard plank as support. Two metal pipes were strapped using tape with wires and a battery.

The pipes were filled with black powder, followed by the projectile(s) stuffed into them to create an airtight space at the end of the barrel where the black powder was stored. The ends of the pipes were sealed tight with caps and two wires connected to each end. Given that BP is a low explosive, the battery provided energy to the wires to heat up or spark, ultimately setting off a detonating charge which propelled the projectiles forward.

Home Made Gun Shinzo Abe

There’s no possibility that was a shotgun since a shotgun uses cartridges and any other small arms ammunition does not set off using electrocution.
