Police were called to an address in The Avenue just after 9.50pm to reports of a disturbance.
A man aged in his late teens was found with serious injuries and died in hospital a short time later.
The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested and subsequently charged. He is due to appear before Hatfield Remand Court today (Thursday, July 12).
Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins from the BCH Major Crime Unit said: “Our thoughts are with those affected by the incident at this difficult time.
