It sounds like my 9yo son. I would recommend seeing a counselor. We saw a private psychologist a couple years ago, and my son didn't mesh with him, so we stopped going and the angry episodes continued and started to affect him in school. It was recommended by the school guidance counselor to call the town and use their services. They have social services that are free to us. We visit weekly for one hour with a psychologist who is also a professor at a local university. He's excellent with my son, and we are able to go into sessions as things come up- last week my son decided he would bring his 10yo sister into a meeting and they worked some things out through games, role-playing, etc.
My son has swung at teachers when he is angry, and he has told us that he would like to kill himself, so we take his angry behavior very seriously. He's on a behavior plan at school, a plan with his karate master, and he has a consequence/reward system at home. We discovered through this process that he has OCD, which very likely contributes to his frustration, which leads to anger.
A counselor is the best place to start. Good luck!
