The interlock system can prevent the key from being turned to lock position if the gear shift getting the signal that it is in Park position.
Check the gear shift position and try wiggling it and see if you can turn the key to remove it.

At the ignition key and lock cylinder there is a solenoid with 2 wires, White/Black and Blue/Black. You would have to remove the steering column cover if you can't see the wire connector.

Unplug the connector and listen for a clicking noise and test if you could remove the key.

Steering column cover means the cover around the ignition key cylinder.
