Remove the battery terminal to shut the car off, looks like you need a new ignition switch...

Try stepping on the brake pedal and moving the gear shift lever into and out of neutral and park. Also slightly moving the steering wheel. Do all this while turning then pulling on the ignition key. Ultimately....joemom is correct......you may have to call a locksmith to effect a repair/replacement.

There is a key- shifter switch under a small tab on top of the console. Pop off tab with a screwdriver and push down on the switch, your key should turn off and come out.
