A Cudahy man was fatally shot Friday night by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies in Lynwood, but details of what led to the shooting have not yet been released, a Sheriff's Department spokeswoman said today.

The man was identified as Guillermo Saucedo, 23, said L.A. county coroner's spokesman Lt. Joe Bale. A preliminary investigation showed that he died from multiple gunshot wounds, Bale said.

The man was shot about 11:35 p.m. in the 12700 block of Waldorf Drive and pronounced dead at the scene, said Deputy Aura Sierra. No deputies were injured, she said.
