stupor: a state in which you are unable to think, hear, etc. clearly, especially because you have drunk too much alcohol, taken drugs or had a shock
In the above passage, does have a shock mean get an electric shock?

I need native speakers' help.
No, although an electric shock would be an example of the kind of shock that can induce stupor. To have a shock usually means to suffer a severe incident of emotional distress.
