Queensland Police have released images of a man they believe may be able to assist them them with inquiries into Saturday's double shooting on the Gold Coast.

A man with outlaw motorcycle gang connections was shot at the crowded Robina Town shopping centre, along with a woman who police believe was an innocent bystander.

The gunman, described as a muscular man of Pacific Islander appearance with a tattooed neck, remains at large but police are combing through video footage to try to track him down.

Three of the images released by police depict a man with a black hoodie, while two of the images show the same man in a white shirt.

The incident is the latest in a series of violent attacks across Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

The gunman is reported to have walked up to the male victim and shot him in the right bicep before fleeing the scene. It is believed the 45-year-old woman was shot in the pelvis.

Both victims were taken to the Gold Coast hospital and are in a stable condition.

The Queensland Government says it will deploy extra police and boost funding to combat the recent wave of bikie-related violence.

In the past businesses owned by the Bandidos and the Hells Angels have been targeted and shots have also been fired into the Gypsy Jokes clubhouse at Everton Hills.
