It's definitely terrorism. People need to be sure to keep legal definitions separate and distinct from practical spoken language. Killing and terrorizing a population for political or ideological ends is terrorism and that's exactly what he did.

Whatever benchmarks they need to meet for legal proof is another topic altogether. Besides, 6 murder convictions and however many attempted murders are on top of that would essentially have the same or greater consequences for him anyway, so the specific terrorism charge is moot.
