An accused killer lying wounded on the floor of a Brooklyn auto dealership brazenly asked the man who shot him for help lighting one of his smokes.

“Give me light for my cigarette,” a bleeding Aaron Adderly asked just moments after Anthony Basso had emptied a gun into Adderly’s midsection, the car dealer testified Wednesday.

“I ain’t giving you nothing,” Basso, 35, said he screamed back. “I’ll give you nothing.”

Adderly, 27, fatally shot the popular owner of a Flatlands car dealership, Robert Carnival, 35, during a botched robbery a few days after Christmas 2008.

Basso testified that he picked up another pistol and fired back, emptying the clip into Adderly. It wasn’t clear where Basso got the gun.

“I took the gun out of the holster and just started shooting,” Basso said during an emotional day on the stand in Brooklyn Supreme Court. “I never used a gun in my life.”

“I wish he was dead. I wish I shot him in the head. He killed my friend,” he said.

Adderly, who was paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair, is on trial for murder along with cohorts Dario Gedeon and Peter Innocent.

Prosecutors believe Innocent planned the stickup.

A fourth accomplice, Antonio Lapenta, testified for the prosecution.
