AFTER STOPPING ENGINE WOULD NOT RESTART

2002 Ford Escape • 18,800 miles

Have a 2002 Ford Excape, FWD, V6 Engine, Automatic. Stopped car for 5 minutes. When I tried to restart the car, the engine wouldn't turn over and starting to make a clicking sound. Got a jump start and car started right up on first try. Drove home and car wouldn't start 5 minutes after I shut it off. Sounds like an alternator problem but could it be something else? How much (estimate) would it cost to have a new alternator put in by a mechanic (including labor). Thanks
