Around 4:45 p.m., two men started shooting at each other nearby, investigators said.
One of the bullets hit the woman in her upper body.
Page was taken to Woodhull Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Police arrested one person, 24-year-old Terrance Villanueva, but the second suspect remained at large.
Villanueva was arrested Saturday on murder and weapons possession charges. A possible telephone number for him rang unanswered, and police didn't know whether he had a lawyer.
Published reports say Page's 8-year-old nephew has barely spoken since the shooting. The victim's brother says she was a devoted aunt with no children of her own.
