    There did not seem to be much coverage of this nationally. My guess is you will see less and less, kinda like covering shootings in Chicago never see the light of day.

    How is someone killing their grandparents a "terrorist attack"?

    The attackers name was Mohammad.

    He was from Somalia.

    He came into the restaurant looking for the owner about the Israeli flag that he advertised outside his establishment and wanted to meet him. When he learned the owner was not around, he went back to his truck to grab a machete knife and began hacking away at customers.

    The man was on an FBI watch list before the event.

    So yea, it was someone just killing their grandparent.

    Nothing to see here. 🙄

    WTF? Here's the article your link goes to:

    A 20-year-old man allegedly shot and decapitated his grandparents inside an Oklahoma City home that doubled as a day care.

    Investigators who came to the house for a welfare check Tuesday afternoon found three children huddled inside an attached garage. The children were unharmed, police said.

    But inside the house, authorities found a grisly scene. Sharon Reed, 59, and James Reed, 78, were dead.

    "Both victims had been shot and decapitated," police said.

    Officers had spotted Quinton Laster, 20, outside. They detained him there as they ventured into the house. Now, police say Laster, the Reeds' grandson, is being held on two counts of first-degree murder.

    Laster was silent as a judge addressed him during a court appearance Thursday. Once a district attorney files charges in the case, the judge said, a hearing will be scheduled and Laster will be assigned a court-appointed attorney.

    Investigators haven't revealed details about a possible motive in the killing, or outlined any evidence they've uncovered in the case.

    Family members told CNN affiliate KFOR that they were devastated, and they didn't know what triggered the killing.

    "It's just a shock," said Brenda Jackson, Sharon Reed's sister.

    "He didn't deserve it, and she didn't deserve it," Jackson said.

    Laster had been living with his grandparents for about two years after being kicked out of his mother's house, Jackson said.

    Images from KFOR showed police cars, an ambulance and police tape strung all around the stand-alone, single-family home.

    The crime scene was nearly a block wide, the CNN affiliate reported.

    The children found inside the garage were later reunited with their families, police said.

    "Luckily, they weren't injured in any way, shape or form," Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Ashley Peters said.

    It's easy to get confused with so many exciting killings going on.

    BTW your article gives neither a name nor a motive for the stabbing... and you are citing national media.

    Here's one with a little more info though the motive remains unclear. http://abcnews.go.com/US/inside-machete-wielding-mans-terrifying-attack-ohio-restaurant/story?id=36889413

    It seems all the major news outlet did carry the story though why it is more newsworthy than the grandparent killer is a bit hard to say; no one was killed (except the attacker) in the machete incident.
