Threatened at work

Manager, over 2yrs. I recently moved to a new store & told one of the employees has personal issues & is a bit strange. One night he calls me very distraught, I find him pulling his hair, biting his fists & saying people don’t deserve to live. I send him home & reported this to my sup, along w/ my safety concerned. My sup stated he is harmless, ignore him he’s been here 9yrs. Over the next 8 wks he had several episodes & made several threats to customers, each time informing my supervisor. One night I get a call from my asst manager who states she is scared for me , this man has said he has a gun in his car w/ a bullet w/ your name on it & he would take care of me in the morning. My sup stated” he is harmless but I will get him moved to another store. Few nights later herom the store. The sup puts him on leave for 2 wks the man shows up the next day saying he wants to return, sup says no and man states he will run his car in to his store. My sup then fires him! Plus sup never reported any of this to HR! An investigation was started & what was supposed to be kept confidential was released to my sup. I acquired a new job, when it seemed I was the one under investigation. HELP
