Here are six things to know for today.

Police on University of Missouri's campus have arrested a suspect accused of making online threats against black students and faculty. Posts found on social media threatened to "shoot every black person I see." Campus police say they are working with other state and local agencies to make sure the campus is safe and secure for students.

Officer Daniel Ellis will be laid to rest today. His funeral is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. at Eastern Kentucky University's Alumni Coliseum. Classes at EKU are canceled until 4:30 p.m. out of respect for his family.

The U.S. Marshals Service says they are looking for Jeffrey Roetzel. Investigators say he is an inmate that escaped from the minimum security prison camp in Marion, Illinois. If you know anything, call the U.S. Marshals Service at (616) 456-2438.

We could find out today who will pay for relocating the dome pavilion in Paducah. The city asked the Paducah-McCracken County Convention Center Corporation to do so. The corporation scheduled a meeting for today to discuss the request.

President Obama will honor veterans today at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. As he does every Veterans Day, the president will lay a wreath at the Tomb in a full honor ceremony. There will also be commemorations at the World War II memorial and Vietnam memorial.

Veterans can get some free food and discounts at dozens of restaurants and retailers today. You can get free breakfast at IHOP and free coffee from Starbucks. For a full list, click here.
