Hard to Tell

I dunno if this is journalsitic bias or poor reporting:
(Ibrahim Sheikh Ahmed, 37) was arrested Feb. 18 on charges of criminal homicide after police said he hit Ohio student Jeremie Invus with his United Cab Co. van. Another student, Andrew Nelson of Dayton, Ohio, dodged the van as it sped toward them.

According to a police report, the three men had a conversation about religion while in the taxi that "became heated." Shortly after the men paid Ahmed, he chased them in his van across the parking lot and over a curb, police said.

Metro police spokeswoman Kris Mumford said one of the students is Catholic and the other is Lutheran. Mumford said that Ahmed's religion was not known.
Not known. Oh REALLY? Well, what we do know is that reporter chose to reveal the religions of the people Ahmed tried to kill with a van, but somehow didn't ask about who Ahmed just might pray to.
