Possible rocket engine problem triggered SpaceX launch abort 

Space.com

SpaceX was slated to blast off its unmanned Dragon capsule and Falcon 9 rocket at 4:55 a.m. EDT (0855 GMT) from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Just after igniting its main engines, the computer onboard the booster initiated an automatic abort due to a high pressure reading in one of the rocket’s nine main engines. 
Dragon was due to fly to the International Space Station to become the first non-governmental vehicle to berth there.
