NEW YORK (AP) — USA network says recent tragic events in Dallas and elsewhere have prompted it to postpone the premiere of its new series, "Shooter."

Originally set to debut next week, "Shooter" will instead begin on July 26, the network said, "out of respect for the victims, their families and our viewers."

The series stars Ryan Phillippe as a highly decorated ex-marine sniper who is coaxed back into action after he learns about a plot to kill the president. USA says this conspiracy thriller is "ultimately about trust, loyalty and family."
