Texas and Ohio shooting: why is there a hesitation to call it an act of terrorism?

Note: I am looking for neutral thoughts, not a jab against America/Americans.

Crude definition of terrorism is "use of violence or of the threat of voilence in the pursuit of political, religious idealogies or social objectives". Given this and my own very abstract sense of terrorism: "act which terrorizes the law abiding citizens", shouldn't the first instinct of any one to call it an act of terrorism?

Whatever killer's intentions maybe, people living nearby those places definitely wouldn't feel safe right? So why this hesitation?

White supremacy is what this person's political idealogy and that should not matter. In my view, it's already an act of terrorism.
