Louis E. Hunter bought a high-powered Ruger revolver five years ago to hunt animals in Tennessee, only to have it mysteriously disappear in an apparent theft from his Brooklyn Park home two years ago. The 29-year-old gun enthusiast had all but given up on finding his prized hunting weapon, which he once used to kill a boar from 50 yards in the Tennessee mountains. He was stunned to learn yesterday that the .44-caliber Ruger Super Redhawk had turned up on a Baltimore street early Monday and was used, police say, to shoot Officer Anthony R. Molesky in the legs.

In a blow to gun-control advocates, the Court of Appeals ruled yesterday that a gun maker cannot be held liable for the accidental death of an East Baltimore toddler, who shot himself with his father's handgun, because the gun was improperly kept under a mattress. The ruling rejects the contention by the mother of 3-year-old Jordan Garris that the Ruger semiautomatic pistol should be considered defective because it lacked a lock to make it childproof. The argument by Melissa M. Halliday failed in two lower courts and was blocked from going before a Baltimore jury.

Baltimore was added yesterday to the list of dozens of American cities and counties in which a legal assault is under way against gun manufacturers and others for alleged product-safety violations. John and Carole Price of Manchester filed a civil suit yesterday in Baltimore Circuit Court seeking damages in the fatal shooting of their 13-year-old son in August 1998 by a younger boy who had found a 9 mm handgun in the Baltimore County townhouse where his father was a tenant. Though the lawsuit names as defendants the boy and his father, the gun's owner and the Fallston pawnshop where it was purchased, the Prices' attorneys focused on the gun's manufacturer, Sturm, Ruger & Co. of Southport, Conn.
