Citing multiple sources, TMZ says that Jaafar Jackson, the 13-year-old son of Jermaine Jackson, purchased a stun gun online three weeks ago. The children were allegedly caught playing with the weapon in the house last week. In one reported incident, a security guard had to stop "Jermaine's kids from stunning Blanket."

On Monday, social workers from the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services visited the Jackson family home in Encino, Calif. (where matriach Katherine Jackson lives with several of her grandchildren) and confiscated the weapon.

With a second stun gun apparently still not recovered, DCFS is reportedly making a return visit to the home on Tuesday, TMZ says.
