Here’s a look at some of the stories reporters are working on Tuesday:

Ohio State shooting - A suspect was in custody after a shooting at The Ohio State University early Tuesday morning, the university said. CNN affiliate WCMH reported that one person was killed and two were wounded in the shooting near Ohio Stadium at the university's campus in Columbus. The university said no students were involved in the incident. We'll continue to follow this story as it develops throughout the day, including details on the shooter and a possible motive.

Same-sex marriage - Dozens of same-sex couples plan to marry in the District of Columbia on Tuesday, the first day that such unions will be legal in the nation's capital. The first marriages are scheduled to happen around 9:30 a.m. ET. Our reporters will bring you live video of the first couples tying the knot and talk to them about what it means.

Obama to meet Greek PM - President Obama plans to meet with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou in Washington at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The Greek prime minister has traveled to several world capitals in the last few days as his government proposes measures to deal with large deficits.

Court hearings - Lots of court hearings schedule on the docket today:  Haison Jiang, who faces tresspassing charges after sneaking past a security gate to kiss his girlfriend goodbye at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport, will be in court Tuesday. Mark Kerrigan, brother of Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, is back in court for a status hearing today. He is accused of killing his father, Daniel, during an argument. He has been out on $10,000 bail after being fitted with a tracking device.  We're also watching some other hearings that could make news.
