A Brooklyn man accused of shooting a rival in the jaw in January could face murder charges now that the victim has died after traveling to California — because the wounded man, left unable to speak, identified his killer in a note to cops, authorities said Wednesday.

Victim Arturo Scott was inside the Lincoln Towers in East New York about 7:25 p.m. Jan. 23, a day before his 42nd birthday, when he was blasted in the jaw during a dispute over drugs, according to cops.

EMS rushed him to Brookdale University Hospital in critical but stable condition, police said.

Scott couldn’t talk because of his wound but he wrote down the name of the man who allegedly shot him: Douglas Pugh.

Pugh, who lives in the building, was arrested on Feb. 5 for attempted murder, assault and gun possession.
