1. Four people were killed in a shooting at Chicago’s Mercy Hospital on Monday afternoon. The three victims included a doctor, a new pharmacist and a police officer. The gunman also died from either police gunfire or a self-inflicted gunshot wound. (CNN)

2. The first legal marijuana shops in New England open Tuesday in Massachusetts, but Mainers looking to visit the pot shops won’t be able to bring their purchase home. Crossing state lines with any marijuana is illegal at the federal level. Transporting marijuana is a felony punishable by five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Like Massachusetts, Mainers legalized recreational marijuana in 2016. The state of Maine is working out the rules before the first marijuana retail shops open. (WMTW)

But city and school officials determined Monday that trying to remove the five inches of snow – with more likely on the way – could damage the new artificial surface. There are three options, according to Portland Athletic Director Rob O’Leary: move the game to 4 p.m. Wednesday; stick to the 10:30 a.m. Thursday start; or cancel for this season. (Press Herald)
