WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is postponing the taping of a Latin music event, citing Monday’s shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.

The White House said in a statement that the decision was made out of respect for the shooting victims and their families.

Authorities say at least 12 people were killed in the shooting.

The event, which is produced by PBS, will be rescheduled. A new date was not immediately announced.
