Sudden sputter and tapping noise and loss of power will driving. on 2008 Chrysler Aspen

Wife was getting daughter from school and just as started to pull offfrim the light the car started to sputter and shake she says like its not getting fuel and its making a loud tapping sound also. Then it stalls out. Tried to restart but a strong smell of gas was present when doing so. So she got it towed home. No check engine or temp light any light cane on as a warning. But the check engine light is on now after we started it to get it off the tow truck.

What's the air filter look like, also the code for the light would be helpful to give some direction in finding the reason.
