PATRAS, Greece, April 20 (UPI) -- Two men were killed Saturday in a drive-by shooting in the Greek port of Patras, police said.

Witnesses said a car with two men inside approached the victims' vehicle and started shooting, Ekathimerini reported. The body of a 38-year-old man was found inside the victims' car and a 31-year-old man was nearby, mortally wounded.

Police said at least 10 bullet casings were found in the area.

Two men were killed Tuesday outside a Patras nightclub by two men on a motorcycle.
