Moore murder

Cops nabbed a perp suspected of killing a 44-year-old woman with an errant shot in a July 10 gunfight.

The shooter fired repeatedly at an unidentified gunman near the corner of Moore Street and Bushwick Avenue, but one of his shots struck 44-year-old Jesselle Page in the shoulder as she sat in a playground outside her building watching her 8-year-old nephew at 4:42 pm, police reports indicate.

As the bullets flew, Page heroically carried the boy to safety inside the lobby of her building, our sister publication, the New York Post, reported.

Paramedics rushed Page to Woodhull Hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead at 5:13 pm.

But police cuffed 24-year-old Terrance Villanueva the following day and charged him with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

S. 2nd shooting

A mysterious gunman shot a 28-year-old woman at a July 10 barbeque on S. Second Street.

The shooter pulled the trigger at around 8:30 pm, striking the victim in the shoulder as she sat in front of the building between Havemeyer Street and Marcy Avenue.

The victim was treated at Bellevue Hospital and the crook escaped unseen.

Broken hearts

Cops locked up an angry ex suspected of stabbing her former boyfriend when he refused to give her $5 on July 12.

The lover turned into a fighter at around 2:30 pm, when she approached her 19-year-old past beau on Hooper Street between S. Second and Third streets and asked for some cash.

When her onetime boyfriend turned her down, the perp pulled out a silver knife and stabbed him repeatedly in the back.

The victim was treated and Bellevue Hospital, and cops locked up a 16-year-old suspect.

L train pain

Cops nabbed a group of teens suspected of pummeling a straphanger for his iPod on July 9.

The four punks entered the Canarsie-bound L train near the station at Harrison Place and Morgan Avenue, and punched and kicked the 16-year-old victim until he handed over the popular digital music player.

After the victim exited the train at Broadway Junction, cops canvassed the neighborhood and locked up two women, ages 16 and 15, and a 17-year-old male. A fourth perp avoided arrest.

The iPod was not recovered.

Bottle bash

A drinker smashed a bottle over a 26-year-old’s head in a random July 12 attack.

The thug struck the victim — who was on his way to the store at the corner of Grand Street and Bushwick Avenue to buy beers — with the bottle at around 1:30 am, leaving him with a laceration.
