A man with a "very distinctive" face tattoo remains on the run weeks after a neighbourhood dispute in Melbourne's west ended in a shooting.

Brodie Cooper, 28, allegedly fled following the targeted attack involving his neighbours at Melton South on May 23, police said.

The 47-year-old man and 43-year-old woman were not injured and Cooper is believed to have fled with other people before returning minutes later to get a motorbike and leaving again.

"During the dispute that he had with his neighbour, there was definitely to-and-fro between both parties," Detective Senior Constable Tim Robinson told reporters on Thursday.

Cooper has a "very distinctive" tattoo above his eye, which police expect "would give him away".

He is known to frequent the Ararat, Stawell, Bacchus Marsh, Grampians and Melton areas.
