With the engine off, pull in the clutch and while rolling the bike forward or backward slowly, see if it you can shift it into neutral. If not, you have a transmission problem.

Why wont 1994 1100 shadow shift out of third gear

Change the gear shifter 2 teeth UP or DOWN.
Otherwise, these models are known for problems with third gear (gear dogs and shifting fork get worn out, hard laser welding is a solution)
