The most likely charge that would be brought against someone who shot another when the other person does not die, is Felonious Assault. Additionally the state of Ohio will add a gun specification to that charge.
Depending of the conduct of the victim at the time of the incident however, it is possible for a person to be charged with Aggravated Assault under these circumstances as well. A prosecutor could add a gun specification to aggravated assault as well.
Sometime shootings are absolutely justified however, and the defense of self-defense is always potentially available.
