A man is on the run after an armed carjacking in eastern Brisbane.

Police say a man loading his red Holden Commodore in a shopping centre carpark on Wynnum Road, Cannon Hill, about 8:15pm on Wednesday.

Police have asked anyone who sees the vehicle with the Queensland registration of 084VMW to contact them, but warned the public not approach the car.
