That sounds like the engine shut down was triggered in the ECM due to low oil pressure, you will have to fix that problem before the system will let you restart the engine. If you believe that there is nothing wrong with the oil pressure you can try a reset of the ECM by removing the ECM fuses for at least 30 seconds then re-installing the fuses and try a restart, If it does restart watch the oil pressure closely, if it is too low the system will shut down the engine.
