The former Brooklyn Center, MN, officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright on April 11 after apparently mistaking her gun for a Taser might defend her actions at trial by framing them as an "Innocent Mistake" or "reasonable," according to a court filing.

Kimberly Potter's attorneys filed a notice of defenses Wednesday afternoon that was made public Thursday morning outlining four potential options.

The defenses are: "Innocent Accident," "Innocent Mistake," "Her perceived use of a Taser was reasonable" and "Lack of causation," the Star-Tribune reports.

Potter is charged with one count each of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree manslaughter and is scheduled to be tried Nov. 30.
