Dramatic footage shows armed police pointing guns at the top floor of a property in Willesden, North West London, before shots rung out.
Police have said the injured woman in her 20s is under police guard in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
Forensic officers were seen removing property from the building, with the Met confirming that further searches are taking place at linked properties across the capital.
Those arrested include a 20-year-old man apprehended near to the address.
A male aged 16 and a woman aged 20 were arrested at the address while a 43-year-old woman was arrested in Kent a short while later.
All four are being held on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts.

Eyewitness Hanna Szabo, 86, told Sun Online: “There were lots and lots of police – around 20 I would say. And lots of cars. I first noticed them at around 7pm.
“I went out to see what was going on but the police just said they had it all under control. I was worried.”
In Westminster earlier today dramatic pictures showed cops wrestling a suspect who was being tracked by security services, to the ground as three large knives and a discarded rucksack lay sprawled on the floor next to him.
It is thought he was headed towards Downing Street after emerging from St James’ Park Tube station followed by cops, who had him under surveillance.

Britain’s current terror level is at “severe,” meaning an attack is highly likely.
Last month terrorist Khalid Masood turned Westminster Bridge into a bloodbath by mowing down at least 20 people — with one witness calling it “a scene of absolute horror”.
Screaming tourists ran for their lives as his car mounted the pavement and started ploughing through crowds on March 22.
The shooting at the North London property has been reported to the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards and the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
