Ethan Embry Held Up & Fires Back?

Actor Ethan Embry was mugged at gunpoint by two men Sunday night outside his Studio City home.

TMZ has confirmed the "Can't Hardly Wait" star told police that two men recognized him from his film and TV roles, and robbed him and wife Sunny Mabrey in their driveway. The thugs allegedly stole Embry's wallet containing $400, a watch, and threatened Mabrey.

As the men fled in a silver SUV, one eyewitness tells TMZ that Ethan raced into his house, emerged with a handgun and fired three rounds -- though it is unclear whether they were in the air or toward the vehicle. Police, however, refused to confirm this information to TMZ.

Mabrey's spokesman Jeff Raymond tells TMZ, "they are fine and the police are handling it."
