Clear ObservableCollection item

I have an Observable Collection Called _items. I use it for a chart for when I add series. Each series has an item  in the collection. I need to clear an item in the collection by selecting the series  on the chart which I am able to do and I get the series name. I am using Linq to iterate through each item in the collection and get that Item. With that  in mind how do I clear that entry. Any help would be greatly appreciated
       private void click_me(object sender, ChartItemClickEventArgs e)
        {
            var filteredData = new List<Item>();
//Get the name of the series to delete
            string legendLabel = e.DataSeries.LegendLabel;
            //string strconfirm = "Confirm Deletion of " + legendLabel;
            //MessageBox.Show(strconfirm);
//run though each item in the collection
            foreach (var item in _items)
            {
                if (item != null)
                {
                    if (item.Count > 0)
                    {
//find it
                        var map = viewchart.SeriesMappings.Where(v => legendLabel == item[0].seriesType).FirstOrDefault();
                        if (map == null)
                            return;
//Clear it here
                        
                    }

                }
            }
           

           
        }

Hi  r3nder;

This should do what you need.

//run though each item in the collection
// I will assume that _items is a collection of data type Item
Item map = null;
foreach (var item in _items)
{
    if (item != null)
    {
        if (item.Count > 0)
        {
            //find it
            map = viewchart.SeriesMappings
                           .Where(v => legendLabel == item[0].seriesType)
                           .FirstOrDefault();
                           
            if (map == null)
                return;
            //Clear it here
            // Can't remove item while you are iterating through the list              
            // So do it outside the foreach loop
        }
    }
}

_items.Remove(map);
