Your request, of course, was entirely reasonable. But kids at times of anger can say very cruel things, maybe not even fully realizing how hurtful this will be. NNa is right. PHysical violence is not the answer ( and he's probably stronger than you already ). Talk about it with him tonight, calmly and firmly, and ask him to comment on what he did, and make it clear that such behaviour is unacceptable. YOu can, out of interest, ask what he thinks is an appropriate punishment, but punish by taking away privileges ; not too many or for too long, so as to keep this in proportion ( and to reserve more severe penalties for later offenses if they occur )
