Yes.
Ball Pythons can indeed live communally in the same tank/enclosure providing the space is adequate and that the animals are separated at feeding time(s).

The attacker probably just got excited at the smell of the mice and jumped the first thing that moved.
Just separate the snakes into their respective feeding boxes before you bring the mice in the room.

As others have said, they should be fine living together, as long as you separate them for feedings. When snakes smell rodents they can often get into what I would describe as a shark-like feeding frenzy. They don't seem to care what they're striking at, as long as it's moving. It could be the mouse, your hand, or another snake. I've even seen them miss and bite themselves.

I've had snakes that feed separately and are still in the "frenzy" once put back together. For those snakes I rinse them in warm water before putting
them back together to get rid of any lingering rodent odor. That seems to solve the problem.

In addition to feeding them in separate tanks I would suggest offering them food more frequently. It sounds like your ball had an extreme feeding response. I have found that this is more likely to happen when snakes are very hungry. How often do you feed your snakes? You might want to increase the frequency of your feedings to prevent problems in the future. snake lady
