motor shaft won't turn

I was using my Ariens push mower yesterday until it died. Now the motor shaft will not turn. Can anyone provide some insight as to what may be wrong? Thanks!

or is their a lot of gas on top of the piston?? Try taking out the spark plug and see if it will turn over.

Are you able to pull the engine over with the rewind starter? Or, is it locked up?
