Shifter won't get into a gear!

Started happening on the hwy. Was going from 5th to 4th but the shifter wouldn't go into 4th - felt like it was blocked from fully engaging the gear. Stayed in 5th and tried shifting again later and was fine.

Now stuck in a parking lot unable to get the jeep in gear.

With the engine off, I can shift an start the jeep but it sounds "wrong".
