Truck shutting off without use of key?

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger 4.0l and after a short drive (20-30 minutes) the truck will shut off when I flip it into "park"

I have no idea where to even begin so please help me

Are you saying the key turns to off position when you put it in park?

No, without moving the key, the truck shuts off. Doesn't sound like its stalling out either
