Without engine model/type numbers all I can do is guess you have fuel in the crankcase (carb flooded) and is now liquid locked (fuel in cylinder on top of piston).

Some of these Briggs carbs are cheaper to replace than try to repair, (Again no numbers).

Since it did run for a couple minutes, I don't think it's hydro locked, but-
Check the oil level
Pull the spark plug and see if the engine will rotate
IF it's an OHV engine, remove the valve cover and look for a valve that may be stuck open/bent
As Rob mentioned, engine numbers are useful.
