Sounds like you lost your fuel pressure or fuel pump!!

Could be a serious problem, first I'd check the oil levels and the condition of the oil, if I recall lack of oil flow through the engine for lubrication will cause the engine to shut down to protect itself from further damage, I believe their are sensors put inplace for this protection.
