A 29-year-old mother was shot in the neck on Friday during a home-invasion robbery in Garden Grove and was found with her twin baby daughters in her arms, police said.

Three masked men broke into the house at 11 a.m. in the 11500 block of West Street.

The woman was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. She was expected to survive, Garden Grove police Lt. Ben Stauffer said.

Her 15-month-old girls were unharmed, he added.

A 70-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were found with their hands zip tied behind their backs, police said.

A neighbor saw the men run inside the home and called police.

"I just thought it was strange and called the police because it was strange how they ran in the house and ran out," the witness said. "I didn't see anything in their hands, I didn't see a gun, I just saw them come out."

Police were looking for four suspects, who were wearing dark clothes, gloves and ski masks. They were still at large Friday night.

All four were armed with revolvers and were last seen driving away south on West Street in a white SUV, Stauffer said.
